Gary Lineker delivers scathing Leicester City verdict

Leicester City legend Gary Lineker was less than impressed by his former club’s latest performance, it would seem.

The Foxes were held to a goalless draw by relegation-threatened Brighton & Hove Albion at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening.

It was City’s first home game since the season was resumed – and played behind closed doors due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Leicester were indebted to goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who saved an early penalty from Neal Maupay.

Lineker approved, tweeting: “Gotta love @kschmeichel1”.

But the Match of the Day presenter did not enjoy City’s display overall and branded it the poorest of Brendan Rodgers’ tenure to date.

“Blimey, this is horrendous,” Lineker tweeted, before the end of the match.

“Worst I’ve seen @LCFC play under Rodgers.”

Here’s what some other Leicester fans made of the display on Twitter…

Molly: Should have had 6 points out of the last two games and ended up with 2.

Josh: Seriously worried we may blow top 4 if we carry on playing like this. I know it takes a few games to get match sharp but we should at least look threatening.

AJ: That’s the worse 90 minutes from #lcfc in a long time. How bad was that? If that’s what project restart is going to produce then we are in for an interesting month.

Damian Sutton: That wasn’t great from #lcfc and plenty to improve on as the old problems against a well organised side appeared again. Still everything to play for in the last 7 league games and a huge FA Cup Quarter Final vs Chelsea.

Jay Allen: Perfectly summed up by Ricardo Pereira (shown on TV yawning from the stands). In other news, Evans & Soyuncu are the best CB pairing in the league.

Tim Roberts: Yours very concerned; lockdown has messed us up and then some…

Paul Lewin: Let’s all take a deep breath and chill and only comment if you were brilliant on your second day back at work after lockdown.

Iain Robinson: I’m not one to usually berate my team on social media… however tonight we were absolutely awful! There’s no reasoning behind such a poor performance.
